CBTTAeo, Aug. 31.?Several delegations hav ing given their votes for Horatio Seymour, when the call of states had been finished, Mr. Seymour declined the nomination. He knew Oen. McClellan did not seek the nomination. Tbat able officer had declared it wonld be more agreeable to him to resume bis position in the army, bnt he will not honor any less the high position assigned him by a great majority of his countrymen, becanse he has not sought It. He lesired to add a few words in reference to Mary lard and her honorable delegates here. Yesterday Uv did an act of injustice to the dis tinguished member of that delegation, (Mr. Harris.) because he (Seymour) did not under stand the purport of his remarks, and he now desired to say that that high toned gentleman was incapable of taking position in this con vention and participating in its deliberations, wbilerefneing to abide by its decisions. We are new appealing to the American people to unite and save onr country. Let ns not look back. It is with the present that we have to deal. Lei bygones be bygones. He could say for onr gallant nominee th*t no man's heart Will glie ve more than his will for any wrongs done th Maryland. As one who did not sup port him an the New York delegation, and as one whe knows the man well, he felt bound to do him this jus^ce. He (Chow. Seymour) would pledge his lite that, when Gen. McClellan is placed in the President's chair be will devote all his energies to the best in. t-sts of his country, and to securing, never again to be invaded, all the rights and privileges of the people under the laws and Constitution. The President then annoui . ?? ? the vote, and it was received witn deafening cheers, the dele gates and audience joining, and the band play ing, and tbe cheering lasting for several minutes. Immediately after the nomination a banner, on which was painted a portrait of General McClellan, and bearing as a motto, "If I can't have command of my own men, let me share their fate on the field ot battle," was run up behind tbe President's p., Tin, and was wel comed with enthusiastic cheers. A communication wae received from the cbBirman of the session of the People's Asso ciation of New York, ch.iming to represent twpiity thousand citizens, accompanied b^ resolutions pledging the members of the asso ciation to the support of the Chicago nominee. Nr. Yallandlgham moved that the nomina t?o? ot George B. McClellan be made the untnimous sense of the convention, which was seconded by Mr. McKeon. Governor Powell biiefly addressed the con veation, pledging his must earnest efforts for the success of the ticket. Judge Allen, of Ohio, and others made brief speeches, and the qu-sMon was then taken on making the nomination unanimous, which was decland carneo-, ..mid deafening applause. Mr Wukline offered a resolution to the effect that Kentucky > xpects the first act of McClellan, when inaugurated in March next, will be to open tbe Lincoln prisons and set the captiv?e iree; which ???'- carried unani mously. The convention tuen proceeded to vote for Vice President. Tl?e Aim ballot resulted as follows: James Gnthne, m%: Georg* ?. l'ndleton, 54/4; Daniel W. Voorhees, 13: George W. Case, 26; Auf ust Dodge, i); J. D. Caton. IS; Gover nor Powell, 3'2??. John J. Phelps. B; filar.k, 3j?. On the second ballot, New York threw ita whole vote .or Perdleton, its chaiiman statina 1 that its former vous lor Mr. Guihrie was against his wishes. The other candidates were then withdrawn, and George H. Pendleton, of Ohio, was on|?njU.. monelv nominated. Mr. Per.dleton, on being londiy called fox, said he had no language id which to exgt?t his thsnks for this evidence of their kindness and confidence. He could uni ? promise to ?le v?te himself in future, as in the poet, with en tire devotion to the great principles which lie at tbe foundation of onr Governm?nfr-tae rights of States and liberile - of the people in the future as in the past. He would beiauhihl to the great principles of Democracy, and strong in their canse. With the hearts jal il.l lions ol freemen witn tbem, they wUregain build up the shattered fragments of the Union, and hand it down to tue next generation as it was received from the last. One person from each State, -elected by the delegates thereof, will be appointed to form a National Executive Committee; and it was re solved, that the Democracy of the conntry art requested to meet at different citits, and hold mass ratification meetings, on the 17th of S p tember, the anniversary of the adoption of the Federal Constitution. With nine cheers for the ticket, the conven tion adjourned, subject to tbe call of the Na tional Committee. From Europe. I,ivKRrrx>L, Aug. 20?Evening?The polit ical news is unimportant. The advices by the Scotia are generali, re garded as decidedly promising fur the North. Tbey caused a. fall in the Confederate loan of irom two to three per cent. The Times editorially says that tbe struggle was never maintained with such vigor as it is at present at all points. The Scotia's news represents the combatants as at the utmost strain, and it is difficult to think that a de cisive resnlt can long be delayed. The cotton market is Arm and nnaltered.

In the correspondence sent in to the lower board of the City Councils by the Mayor, in answer to the Council resolution of inquiry in relation to the cause of the stoppage of the work on the Center Market, was the following letter from tbe Mayor to the Secretary of the Interior, showing conclusively the right of the city to occupy the ground in question asa pub lic market : Mayor's Ofkicb, Ang. 1, IS6I. Hon. J. P. Usher, Secretary of the Interior : Sin : I wonld respectfully call your attention to a joint resolution of Congress entitled " Joint resolution authorizing tbe Secretary of the In terior to reclaim and preserve certain property of the United States," and 1: quire what, if any, action w ill be taken by yon under it to prevent the erection by this Corporation of a new mar on the reservation now occupied by the Centre Market, south of Pennsylvania av enue, between 7th and 9th streets west. Though it might have been tbe object and in tention of the member who offered that "joint resolution" to prevent the erection, by this Corporation, of a new hi.i -'mg on the site of the present Centre Mark-t. no particular men tion or allusion is mace to it, and it is not rea sonable to suppose that, if advised of such ob? jfct and intention, Congress would in so hur ried a manner, without information on the subject, and without providing something in lfen thereof, have adopted a measure so mate rially affecting the comfort and convenience of the community of Washington and tbe inter ests ol this Corporation, and so detrimental to private rights. Tbe resolution is general in its terms, author izing and directing the Secretary of the Inte rior "to prevent the improper appropriation or occupation of any of the public streets, ave nues, squares, or reservations in the city of Washington belonging to the United Mates, to reolaim the same, if unlawfully appropriated, and particularly to prevent the erection of any permanent building upon any property re served to and for tbe use o? the United States, unless plainly authorized by act of Congress," with a proviso that "nothing therein contained shall be construed, however, to Interfere with the temporary and proper occupation ot any portion of such property, by lawful authority, for the legitimate purposes of the United States." To Ring tbis joint resolution ss the chairman *?>r u is intended, the Inquiry will be, by tvhat authority this Corporation occupies and use? tbat space'for market purposes, and though the right se to occupy it might be readily pre sumed from the length of time it has been so used, the authority o? this Corporation wUl, I think, on examination, be found to hare ema nated irom Congress itself. Tbe act of Congress establishing a "tempo rary and permanent seat ot government of the United States, (Jnly 16, 1790.) and an act to amend tbe same, (March 3, 1791.) authorized the PieBident of the United States to appoint tbree Commissioners, any two of wbom were empowered, under tbe direction of tbe Presi dent, to survey and by proper metes and bounds define and limit a district ef territory, and with power to purchase or accept such quanti ty of land on tbe eastern side of the Potomac, as tbe President should deem proper, for the w.'e of the United States and according to swh plan as the President shall a]>prowf, to provide suitable r-nildinge lor the accommodation of Congress, for the President, and tbe public cfiices of tbe Government of the United States." Iiy authority of these acts of Congress, and undei the direction of the President and these Ccmmieslcner?, Major Charles Peter l'Enfant laid out a plan of tbe seat of the Federal Gov ernment, and tbe proprietors of the soil, on the ?9tb of June, 1791, executed a deed conveying aU their lands to Thomas Bell, of George, and John M. Gant, up^n the special trusts to con? vey all the eaid lands, or snch part thereof as may be thought necessary and proper, to be laid out as a Federal City, with euch streets, rquares, parcels, and lots as the President of the United States to the Commissioners for the time being appointed by virtue of the act of Congress entitled ?'An act for establishing a temporary and permanent seat of Government of tbe United States" and their successors, fur the uee of the U~r.ited States forever. All the said l:.rd. streets, and such of the said squares, parcels, and lots as the President sball deem proper, lor the use ol the Lrnited States; and that as to tbe residue of tbe said lots into which tbe said lands shall bave been laid cif and divided, that a fair and equal division of them snail be made, one-halt to tbe original proprie tors, tbe other moiety "to be sold at sucti times and on such terms and conditions as the Presi, dem ot tbe United States shall direct, and the produce of the sales of said lots applied in the first place to the payment in money for so m neb of tbe land as might be appropriated to the use ol the United States, at trie rate of i'lry per acre, not accounting streets as part thereof, tbis being so paid, or in any otber manner satisfied," then tbe produce ol" the same sales, or what may remain thereof as afor-said in money or securities of any hind, eball be paid, assigned, transferred, and delivered over to the President for the time being as a grant of mon* y to be applied lor tbe purposes and according to tbe act of Congress aforesaid. On the 19th day of December, 1791, the Leg islature of Maryland passed an act"concern ing the Territory of Columbia and the City of "Washington," subjecting tbe lands of all other persons in the ciiy to tbe terms and conditions as those conveyed by Notley Young and others ir trust to Beali and Gant. These acts ot Congress, tbe act of the Legis lature of Maryland, with tbe deeds of trust i>om the proprietors of the soil, are the sources of authority under which the President and Commissioners acted in laying out the city. Tbe plan o? Major l'Enfant, with slight al terations made by Mr. Ellicott, was approved by General Washington, and tbe division of K* te between tbe Government and the pro prietors of the soil as provided for in the deeds cf trust made in accordance therewith. In the original plan were many spaces re served to and for the nse of the United State?, tbe object for which they were reserved and tbe purposes to which they were to be devoted, with the exception of those for the Capitol and President's House, were not at tbat time indi cated by any official act of either the President or the Commissioners. The designation of tbe others was held under a visement, and on the 3uth of June, 1701, the Commissioners directed their surveyor, Mr ? ?cholas King, "to lay ont tbe market scj uares," and on tbe 18th of October, in tbe same year, in a letter addressed to Mr. Duvid Burns, a pioprletorof ground in that neighborhood, they say "tie gronnd taken for public use about to?? market square is not yet entirely ascertained, Mr. Johnson has directions to furnish you w ith tbe quantity of your ground appropriated by tbe Commissioners for the market and about it.

It W3F not till then that General Washing ton gave a definite shape to his well matured reflection on tbe destinations of the portions of ground in the City of Washington reserved to and for the use of tbe United States. On the 2d of March, 1797, just two days be fore be vacated the Presidential chair, by vir tue of the authority veajed in bim and the Com missioners by acts of Congress and the deeds of trust, in order to except them from the terms of the act of May 6th, 1796, and to prevent a sale of them under this act, adopting tbe lan guage of that act and defining them severally by metes and bounds, he appropriated seven teen of those pieces or portions of ground so reterved to and for the use of the United States, as followe: 13 231 j^q jTiie President's Square.? - 83 ' 2 The Capitol Square and Mall east of : lath street west.227 3 The Park Fouth of Tiber Creek and I west of 15th street west.?_? 29 4 ? he University Square, south of I squares No. 33 and 34, to Potomac' rirer~-.! 19 r,The Fort at Turkey Buzzard or | Greenleaf's Point...._..?.! 28 C Tbe West Market, on Potomac (cov I ered wiih w?tnr). ,,.... 7 Tie Center Market..?. , , ..' 3 s The Natioral Church Square.? 4 9 The Jud'ciary Square.._j 19 lOiNorth of Pennsylvania avenue, be-j ! tween 3d and A ttreets west.| 6 11 Between north ? and C streets and j 2d snd 3d streets west_. 12 North of Pennsylvania avenue, be I tween ?dan!

(Act April loth, 179H> And again in 1300, when, "for the greater convenience of tbe members of both bouses of Congress in attending to theii d uty in tbe eaid City o? Washington, and tbe greater facility of communication between the various offices aud Departments of the Government," tbe Com missioners were authorized to ?"?Trow money for the purpose of making foot v. .ye in suita ble places and directions, and all tbe lots in the City ol Washington vested in the ('ommlssion ere er tbe trustees in tbe City of 'vVasbington in any manner for the use of 'ne United States and tben remaining unsold, except those set apart lor public purposes, :nuue chargeable with its repayment. The City Councils deeming th? appropria tion of tbat piece or portion of tbe property so reserved to and for the use o? the United States by Gen. Washington, and i* ? recognition by P'resident Adams and Con press tor the pur pose of a market, subsequently, on the 6th o? October, 1*W. passed an aet establishing a mar ket on the space south of Pennsylvania av enue, between 7th snd 9th btreets west, to be known by the name of the Centre Market. Thie act was approved by the then Mayor. (Mr. Brent,) an appointee of the President,?fed the Corporation has continued in possession of that ?pace and need it as appropriated by Gen.

Just after the first act of Incorporation of the city of Washington. (May 3d, 1*?,) and the peerage of the act by its Councils to establish a market on this space, (October ?th, 1901?) Mr. Nil holas Ktng, who bad been entrusted by General Washington with making the officiai plat book, on the 25th September, igt?, in a letter to President Adam?, in speaking of these ap propriations and the use to which they were to be applied, says: ?In the sales that had been made, both by the Commissioners and the ori ginal proprietors, tbe designations of these places have been spoken of as inducements to purchasers, many ot whom have selected their property accordingly. Tbe extensive appro priations for tbe public buildings of the United ?States and for tbe city for public walks, mar lets, and other impoitant purposes ought to be held agreeably to the intention of the donors and the views with which they were selected in older to acquire and sf cure the public con fidence so necessary to onr growth and pros 5 ei uy." Tfcese views were approved by President Ar'ams and his successor!? in office to the pres et time, and Congress itself, in Mt>, 1*2", 1824 1-26 and 1S48 sanctioned them when it pro vided ?That the Corporation shall have power and authority to occupy and improve 1?t public purposes by and with the coneeut of the Pres ident of the United States, any part of tbe public and open spaces and ?quares in said city not interfering with any private rights." Again, Congress (Act May !>th, l?-60,i recog nized the claim of this Corporation to use that space lor the purpose of a market, and ceded to it tbat property for such purpose so long as the market house should be continued thereon, and authorized tbe city of Washington to bor row a sum not exceeding two hundred thou sand dollars, at a rate of interest not exceed ing tix per cent., coupled, however, with a condition tbat a new market house according to a certain plan should be hntlt ?bereea with in tbe ^period of two years. Thus it appears verv clearly that up to a very recent period the Executive and Legisla tive authority of tbe country has recognised the right of this city to occupy this pub'.l: space as a public market, and it has so occu pied it nncera claim of right for more than sixty years. Ner is then? any act of the Executive or any proceeding in Congress to be found inconsis tent with this lawful claim; for although at first tbe act of the ?th of May, l^fiO, may eeem tobe inconsistent witn sucha claim, on ex amination it will be found not to be so. By the amended charter ot IBtSi section 10th, the corporate authorities of this city are ex pressly prohibited ? rom increasing its funded debt except in the manner prescribed in that section. In the vear 1-60 they desired to erect a new market-house en the site of the old Centre Market, and to enable them to do so applied to Congress tor power to create a debt not ex ceeding 9200,000 at a rate of interest not ex ceeding six per cent. On this application Con gress passed the act in question. The first sentence of the first section of this act recognizes the fact that this space has been heretofore and is still occupied for the Centre Market, and ceded it to the Corporation on condition that they should, within two yean thereafter, erect thereon a market-house. The third sentence authorizes the Corporation to create a debt not exceeding B200,i00 to erect said market-bouse. Ana the third section provides tbat in case it shall take eflect it shall be construed to ves., the title to ihe prorerty in the Corporation so long as tbe said market-house shall be con tinued thereon and need for the purposes afore said and no longer. We are to look for the meaning of the legis latore to the common eenee construction of the words employed, the remedy they intend to provide, and to the external lads to aid as in discovering tbe misrhief intended to be reme died. If, as has been shown, this plot o? ground was origli, a ? ? set apart as a place for a maiket bouse by General Washington, under tbe powers vested in him under the deeds of trusts trom tbe proprietors of the soil, the acte of Congress and the Maryland Legislature, and bas been uninterrupted^?, for the space of sixty years, used and occupied by the Corpor ation of Washington with full knowledge of the Executive and Legislative authorities, al though the title to the land still remained in the United States and thie was no more than a permissive occupation at the will of the Gov ernment, it cannot be doubted that until Con gr?es legislated on the subject the city was jus tified in treating the property as rightfully de voted to their use. 1 hcv bad not power under their charter to increase tbe funded debt, so as to enable them to bnild snch a market house as would satisfy tbs public demand, and gratify the public tiste, and claiming the right still to occupy the ground, bnt desiring to remove all possible doubt as to tbe permanency of that right, they applied for a cession of the ground, and for power to raise money for the contemplated improvement Iu this there was no abandonment of a right any more than a man who has an equitable estate, or an easement, abandons his claim when be applies for and receives a quit claim of the legal title outstanding in another, nor does a jnst criticism of the words of tbe act lead ? any other conclusion The extent to which they go is that Congress secures to the Corporation the nse of tbe ground already oc cupied by the Corporation, if the building corremplated in the act shall be constructed wi hin the time limited therein, so long as the building shall be used as a markei house. The failure of the Corporation to satisfy the condition occasioned by the ertraordinary con dition of the Country, and the extraordinary state of things leaves the matter precisely where it stood before, and the respective par ties unaffected by it. The resolution to which I have called your attention requires you to ?reclaim such public grounds as are unlawfully appropriated, and to prevent the erection of any permanent build ing upon any property reserved to the use of the United States, unless plainly authorized by act ot Congress." Unless the word plainly in this resolution is to be read ?expressly" or by some equivalent term, I beg leave to say the resolution ?plainly" does not prohibit or au thorize you to prevent the erection of the con templated market-honse. Tbe covenant and agreement in the deed of trust from the propri etors of the soil ?that the grantor and his heirs and assigns should and might continue in bis possession and occupation of their lands at their will and pleasure, until they shall be occupied under the said appropriations for the uee of the United States, or by purchasers : and when any lots or parcels shall be occupied by purchase or appropriation, as aforesaid, then and not till then should the grantor re linquish his occupation thereof," the early legislation on this subject, and the distinct appropriation of this parcel ot ground for a Certer Market, and the uninterrupted occupa tion of it by this Corporation for so many yeare, all show the understanding of the re spective parties, that when General Washing ton set it apart for a Center Market it was ia& tended that the corporate authorities of the city? then in contemplation, when they should come into being, should have the use of it for ? Center Market. It is not possible to conceive tbat either tbe President, or the Trastees, or Congress were to build and manage a market-honse, and it was then as now emphatically a part of tbe powers held by municipal corporations. Th?t Genera'l Washington, under the express legislation of Congress already referred to, had power so to set apart, designate, and appro priate this specific reservation can admit of no rational doubt That he did so set it apart is equally evident. We have then the act of Congress, which "plainly" authorized the President to set apart this reservation for the purposes of a market, the act of the President execnting the power so vested in him, the acts of this Corporation from time to time improving the ground and erect ing the buildings thereon, and it can scarcely be contended that nnder this resolution yon are required to prevent them from pulling down those old, unsightly and dilapidated buildings, thus abating a nuisance already borne too long by this community, and erecting new and fitring ones in their place. Very respectfully, Richard Wallach, Mayor. --?
